Every once and while Robin and I talk about the variety of cards that we send to OWH. We try to make sure that each and every box has a nice variety, from 'Happy Birthday' cards to 'thinking of you' or whatever is appropriate for the upcoming holidays. Yet, given the fact that we use mostly PTI stamps, we find that a lot of our cards are more geared to adults. Its not that these cards can't be sent to children but rather that they are just quite sophisticated. Recently we purchased a PTI stamp set designed for kids in an effort to try to make more cards for children. 

I made this card using the Marvy punches that we have. I stamped the image of cookie monster in blue and added a half of an oval for the mouth and two circles for eyes. The cookie was actually made the same way- a large tan circle was embellished with smaller brown circles to look like chocolate chips. A scalloped circle was used to make it look like the cookie had been partially eaten. Finally, I stamped a sentiment from the Hero Arts Monster set. While I love the more sophisticated cards that we make, I do hope to make more cards for children in the future. Hopefully the new PTI stamp set designed for kids will inspire me to do so!
